The atmosphere of The Frutería tips its hat to Mexico's artisans. The space is contemporary yet casual anchored by the use of vibrant colors and textures. From the furniture, lighting, artwork to the earthenware used to serve food, The Frutería provides an authentic and fresh experience. By day the menu offerings range from fresh fruit cups, licuados (smoothies) to tortas and tostadas for breakfast and lunch. By night, The Frutería transforms into a Botanero offering Mexican tapas or small plates of botanas or antojitos, ranging from nuts, guacamoles, stuffed peppers to bite-size tostadas or chilapitas. The Frutería drink menu includes a well thought-out list of Tequilas from various regions and fruit infused cocktails. Come in, have a seat and enjoy this new Botanero by Chef Johhny Hernandez.

Went in for a quick lunch. Had the shrimp tacos. The aioli sauce was fantastic. Always enjoy a nice tasting agua fresca.

Had high hopes...beautiful spot and unique menu. However, for Restaurant Week, it was cheaper to order the actual items from the menu...not a deal at all. Then we asked about dessert and were just told they had no dessert. Wasn’t a very welcoming service experience.

Delicious yellow fin yucateca tortas. The tuna is lightly seared and thinly sliced. Fresh sandwich rolls had a crispy crust with warm, soft interior perfect for building a sandwich with olive oil, guacamole, pickled onions with fresh cilantro and shredded cabbage. We enjoyed a margarita made with pepper infused tequila was yummy and not too spicy.

Great service from the start while waiting for all of our party members to arrive. Our wonderful server took the time to explain each item to us and make recommendations - which is helpful for us non-Spanish speakers and also a rare amenity at many places. Food was delicious - full of spice, color, and flavor. Margaritas were sweet and did not taste of liquor at all. Prices are very affordable. Highly recommend for brunch or a late lunch. Great for casual work get-togethers or time with family/friends.

The food is a bit pricey, but totally worth it!! If you feel like splurging a bit, definitely check out The Fruteria!!! The Mole Blanco is amazing!!!

First, we love this place! We dine here a lot. For the first time we found the service to be off. Not sure what was going on but one of our appetizers arrived at the end of our meal. We were told twice that it was coming and it did, very late!

The menu was wonderful, the food was truly traditional, which can be hard to find in a sea of TexMex. I highly recommend this spot for an awesome Mexican cuisine experience.

This is one of our new favorite places. The food is FRESH and homemade and not prepared by SYSCO! OUTSTANDING SERVICE, AND FOOD. Great for lunch...dinner...not at all fancy but EXCELLENT! We would go to SAN ANTONIO JUST TO EAT HERE! Rarely do you find excellent, fresh food at a casual establishment like this. Definitely worth eating here! Dang...I am ready to go back just talking about it!
